The Order of the “catching aways” End-Time Time-Line
Guidelines to help understand Prophecy and the book of Revelation
1. PROPHECY WILL BE FULFILLED LITERALLY – not symbolically
Since about one-fourth of the Bible was written as prophecy, it is evident that God intended to pull back the veil of the future and to give some indications of what His plans were for the human race and the world as a whole. Most significant is the fact that half of the 1000 prophecies in the Bible have already been fulfilled and they were ALL fulfilled literally. Therefore, we can look forward to the rest of the prophecies to also be fulfilled literally. (Every Prophecy Of The Bible; John F. Walvoord).
*Take note, there is a lot of symbolism in the Bible, especially in prophecy, but the symbolism describes literal fulfillment. We will find literal heavens and hell; a literal rapture of literal people symbolically called The Bride of Christ. The Anti-Christ is symbolically described as one riding on a white horse that conquers with a bow but no arrows and is given a crown. He becomes a literal world leader who doesn’t steal or fight for the position, rather comes into power with a bow but no arrows, riding a white horse (meaning peacefully but also a counterfeit of Jesus coming in on a white horse). The Sun Clad woman is a symbol of the literal entire Nation of Israel and the return of Jesus with a 1000-year reign on earth is literally 1000 years on earth
2. LAW OF SEPARATION – Jews and Gentiles
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17.
a. Jews are the wife of God
That being said some verses are written to (Jews) Children of Israel only and some to Gentiles only. For example the Jews are symbolically called “the wife of God” that has gone astray.
Return, O backsliding children,” says the Lord; “for I am married to you… Surely, as a wife treacherously departs from her husband, So have you dealt treacherously with Me,
O house of Israel,” says the Lord. Jerimiah 3:14, 20
For your Maker is your husband, The Lord of hosts is His name; And your Redeemer Is the Holy One of Israel; He is called the God of the whole earth. 6 For the Lord has called you Like a woman forsaken and grieved in spirit, Like a youthful wife when you were refused,” Says your God. Isaiah 54:5-6
b. Gentiles will be the Bride of Christ
The intimate Jesus followers, symbolically called the Bride of Christ are Gentile; in keeping things in order the Jews are already married. The Bridegroom (Jesus) gives His life for the Ekklesia recorded in Ephesians, and out of them will He choose His Bride. This is also the Bridegroom and Bride mentioned the end of the Book of Revelation.
Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the Ekklesia (church); and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the Ekklesia (church) is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the Ekklesia (church) and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious Ekklesia (church), not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the Ekklesia (church). 30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. (Just like Eve was from Adam’s bone and “flesh of flesh”) 31 “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” (Marriage) 32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the Ekklesia (church). Ephesians 5:22-32
…and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore… Revelation 18:23
c. Overcoming confusion
Over the years, many have been confused, and used the following scripture to prove that there is no separation between Jews and Gentiles:
But the Scripture has confined all under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe… 26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:22-28
A closer look at the context in Galatians we find Paul explaining salvation for all, there is no rank or separation needed. We are all in the group of the “Who-So-Evers” receiving salvation confirmed by Jesus, but still separation by rank to complete all things at the end:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (KJV)
d. All Scripture is profitable for all but some is directed to Jews and some to Gentiles
…the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:15-17
The reason for placing so much attention to this separation of rank is to be able to understand why the “catching aways” or raptures are in the order they are. Understanding that certain scriptures are for Jews and certain ones for Gentiles makes navigating through the book of Revelation much easier!
*NOTE: For example, the first six chapters and the last half of the seventh of the book of Revelation are about God completing all things promised to the Gentiles. The first part of the Seventh chapter and chapters eight through twenty are about God completing all things promised to the Jews. Chapters twenty-one and twenty-two are ALL things new!
e. The Book of Revelation is in an exact order.
The Book of Revelation must be kept in the order it was written. Be diligent – do not be tempted to pull an event out of its given location and dislocate it somewhere else in time.
3. FIRST AND LAST
This is the entire “mystery revealed in the parable of the workers in the field” when it came time for being paid or reckoning. The first labors in the “field” (evangelizing the world) all day (Jews) being paid not only last but also the exact same payment (salvation) as the ones who only worked (evangelizing the world) the last hour (Gentiles). So, the first shall be last and the last shall be first in the reckoning at the end of days.
Call the laborers and give them their wages, beginning with the last to the first. Matthew 20:8
In the same order that the labors are paid or reckoned with in the parable, is the order that God completes his reckoning with the Gentiles first and the Jews last. Even though there is no value difference between Gentiles and Jews concerning the wonderful gift of salvation from Jesus; God deals with both groups separately and in order.
Now let’s travel back and look at the whole timeline to see the full picture. We will be working from a timeline developed in 1919 by a Jesus follower and Minister Ira Surface. He created this work inspired by The Holy Spirit as he studied the Scriptures. Not only did he not have a computer, but his work was also completed before 1948, when Israel became a nation, which all of his work was based on.
Today you will discover your place in God’s plan
STOP! I will probably lose you here as you look at the Timeline for the first time because it is amazing! Go ahead and look around at the Timeline and then come back and I will guide you through it.
Find this section at the top of the Timeline, draw a line and write Israel 1948.
Next, if you were born after 1948 draw another line to the right and write your name and birthdate. If born before 1948 draw a line to the left and write your name and birthdate. You have just entered God’s Timeline! There is no mistake that you were born at this amazing time, and God has had a plan for you all along. May this very simple act bring you great hope!
4. LOOK TO THE FIG TREE – it will reveal the very generation that you are living in!
There are two very important trees in Israel the olive tree and the fig tree. But the fig tree is used to measure Israel’s standing with God.
Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. Matthew 24:32-34
The fig tree is a metaphor of Israel itself – It often symbolized the health of the nation both spiritually and physically.
I found Israel Like grapes in the wilderness; I saw your fathers As the first Fruits on the fig tree in its first season. Hosea 9:10
And Judah and Israel dwelt safely, each man under his vine and his fig tree, from Dan as far as Beersheba, all the days of Solomon. 1 Kings 4:25
Later still, we can see warnings to the nation of Israel, how God would bring destruction and failure of crops as part of his judgement against them, specifying empty fig trees that were stripped bare and fruitless (Joel, Habakkuk and Haggai). The fig was something of a barometer of the health of the nation of Israel – taken away as punishment and flourishing in times of restoration.
In the New Testament we can also see Jesus using the symbolic fig tree – firstly in the calling of Nathanael who was “sitting under a fig tree” like a “true Israelite” in John 1:48-50. Later he curses the fruitless fig tree, representing unfruitfulness (Mark 11:12-21), and then uses the fig tree as a metaphor of how we should recognize the signs of the times (Matthew 24:32).
This sign of the Blooming Fig Tree happened in our lifetime!
1948 The Blooming of Israel – the Fig Tree
On the enclosed Timeline, you just entered the date 1948, why? Because the one who drafted it; Ira Surface, finished in 1919 and printed in 1920, before Israel became a nation in 1948. I desired to keep his work in its original form. You also entered your birthdate because YOU ARE THAT GENERATION!
- Matthew 24:1-2 – Jesus Predicts the Destruction of the Temple.
- Matthew 24:3-14 -The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age.
- Matthew 24:15-28 – The Great Tribulation.
- Matthew 24:29-31 – The Coming of the Son of Man.
- Matthew 24:34 – this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place.
Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it (Jesus) is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. Matthew 24:34
1948, The Fig Tree bloomed as Israel became a nation after 2000 years of wandering and you were born in this generation. This Timeline is in “Real time” it is happening now. From 1948 there were no other prophecies that needed to be fulfilled for Father God to tell His Son Jesus to go get His Bride. The Bride of Christ, your loved ones have been raptured as The Scriptures have foretold.
For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. Titus 2:11-14
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
What happens next? Look at your Timeline.
Look at the top of your Timeline, first bubble. The rapture of The Bride of Christ was The First Fruit Gentile Barley Harvest.
Look at the top of your Timeline second bubble. The next fulfillment of scripture will be The Full Gentile Barley Harvest. That is YOU! The martyrs dressed in white robes waiting for the last Gentile to give their life to Jesus, the Tribulation Saints; or when the fullness of the Gentiles will come in. YOU are the “souls under the alter”!
We that have been raptured kept looking, waiting, praying, and witnessing every day because we were not exactly sure when we would be raptured. In the same way your day is also on a “sliding scale” but it will happen sometime after our rapture, The Bride of Christ – after the one world leader is installed (the anti-Christ) but before three and a half years into the Tribulation.
Which brings us to the Anti-Christ; you will find this person at the bottom of the Timeline between the rapture of The Bride and the rapture of the Tribulation Saints. Let’s take a look.
Anti-Christ – You are living in the hour of his rule on earth
The world you live in has been seduced, deceived and lied to for so many years that the words written by the prophet Isaiah a few thousand years ago are at its pinnacle. Truth is gone. There is no reasoning with the world you live in; no “right or wrong” no standard of good so don’t waste your time or energy trying to battle in this area.
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight! 22 Woe to men mighty at drinking wine, Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink, 23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away justice from the righteous man! Isaiah 5:20-23
We have already written about lawlessness and the lawless one who has embodied this spirit power, you can find the revealing of this person on your Timeline all the way to the left, in the circle marked Daniel’s Prophecy from Babylon. This was first told of by the prophet Daniel when he was given the prophetic picture of seventy-weeks (meaning 70 weeks of years) for Father God to bring down ALL kingdoms on earth with only His Kingdom remaining; The Kingdom of God still standing, with Jesus as King.
This is a Bible Guy Break-Down of Daniel 9:24-27 and 12:11 stay focused here!
“Seventy weeks are determined For your people and for your holy city, To finish the transgression, To make an end of sins, To make reconciliation for iniquity, To bring in everlasting righteousness, To seal up vision and prophecy, And to anoint the Most Holy.
- 25 “Know therefore and understand, That from the going forth of the command To restore and build Jerusalem (first line coming out of the circle of Daniel’s Prophecy).
- Until Messiah the Prince, There shall be seven weeks (second line coming out of the circle).
- and sixty-two weeks; (third line coming out of the circle) The street shall be built again, and the wall, Even in troublesome times.
- 26 “And after the sixty-two weeks (again third line coming out of circle).
- Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; (the exact time Jesus the Messiah will be crucified)!
- And the people of the prince who is to come (Anti-Christ possessed with lawlessness, One World Leader).
- Shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. (Jerusalem and temple destroyed 70 AD by Rome).
- The end of it shall be with a flood, And till the end of the war desolations are determined. 27 Then he (Anti-Christ One World Leader) shall confirm a covenant (peace agreement or treaty between the newly established Ten Nation Coalition and Israel).
- or with many for one week; (or last week or seven years; starting the last week of Daniels vision prophecy which is the seven years of Tribulation).
- But in the middle of the week (first three and one half years). He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. (Anti-Christ funded the rebuilding of Israel’s Temple where the Jewish temple worship and priests reinstated animal sacrifices).
- And from the time that the daily sacrifice is taken away, and the abomination of desolation is set up, (Anti-Christ brings in and sacrifices an “unclean red calf” declaring himself as god).
- there shall be one thousand two hundred and ninety days (or the middle of the seven year Tribulation, or three and one-half years, this starts The Great Tribulation). Daniel 12:11
TimeLine, back to today, back to “real time”
*Take note of the long line that goes from Daniel’s circle to the right stopping just after the rapture of the Bride of Christ, it is marked with two scriptures Daniel 9:24 which we just reviewed plus just below the arrow you will find the White Horse from Revelation 6:1 which fulfills the prophecy.
Now I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals; and I heard one of the four living creatures saying with a voice like thunder, “Come and see.” 2 And I looked, and behold, a white horse. He who sat on it had a bow; and a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer. Revelation 6:1
We could stop here
You are now current in “real time” on your Time-Line, as you give your life to Jesus; you are living somewhere in the first three and a half years of the Tribulation on the earth, while we have started a “seven year marriage celebration” in Heaven with Jesus! This is the end of Father God’s conclusion of the reckoning of all Jesus Following Gentiles, Amen.
The rest of the Time-Line is devoted to the reckoning of the Jews scheduled with the Wheat harvest, so to understand the order of the last “catching aways” let us go back to the abomination we studied in Daniel 24.
Rapture of The Man Child the 144,000
Jesus was recorded saying:
…when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place” (whoever reads, let him understand)… (this is the halfway point of the tribulation, the three and one-half weeks, the three and on- half years, the one thousand two hundred and ninety days where the Anti-Christ makes sacrifice and declares that “he, she, or them is god) 21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. Matthew 24:15-21
…for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
At this point, Satan and his demons are barred from the third heaven all together and now cast down from the second heaven as the “Full Deceiving Force of Lawlessness” is in the earthly Anti-Christ.
Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they (the 144,000 Christ following Jews for sure) overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time. Revelation 12:10-12
On your TimeLine find the next arrows going up called the Man Child Caught Up. Notice that the tunnel is going through The Sun-Clad Woman, which is National Israel.
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. 2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. Revelation 12:1
Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. Revelation 12:13
All of Isaiah chapter 66 is prophecy devoted to this very moment.
Before she was in labor, she gave birth; Before her pain came, She delivered a male child. 8 Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Isaiah 66:7
First Fruit Jewish Wheat Harvest Rapture
When the Anti-Christ claims to be God, 144,000 Jews (the man child) of National Israel (the Sun clad Woman) will publicly reveal their understanding, loyalty and commitment to King and Messiah Jesus. Before they can be caught and executed, they will be caught up, this is the next rapture.
These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God (firstfruit wheat harvest) and to the Lamb. 5 And in their mouth was found no deceit, (True Israelites) for they are without fault before the throne of God. Revelation 14:4-5
*TAKE NOTE: This is the last Rapture or “Catching Away” until 1000 years later when ALL are raptured to the New Heaven and New Earth recorded in Revelation 21 and 22.
The Full Jewish Wheat Harvest is only resurrected to earth, not raptured to Heaven
…Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years (on earth)… This is the first resurrection. Revelation 20:4-5
The millennial reign; a true 1000 years in the Kingdom of God on earth.
Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. Revelation 20:1-3
The Great White Throne Judgment
…Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. 12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. 13 The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:11-15

Thank you for taking a look. I have been working on this subject since 1978, hoping this will be a legacy for the 44 years of being a Bible Treasure Hunter.
